Designed for both new users of technology and early adopters, the book is a rigorous examination of writing and technologies that provides thoughtful and measured instruction and will help its users write effective prose. By combining traditional rhetorical instruction with critical assessments of new opportunities created by the Internet, Writing in an Electric World prepares its readers for the real experiences and demands of the evolving, literate world. Covering larger issues, such as the connection of writing to community and the evolution of how writers use technology, Writing in the Electronic World also provides thorough insightful guidance for writing and thinking critically in this high-speed and interconnected era. Engaging readings, discussing topics ranging from personal identity to global community, serve as examples of strong reasoning and good writing, while "Writing Prompts" appear throughout the book with suggestion about writing for yourself and writing in an electronic world. For anyone interested in writing, technology and developing critical thinking skills.
